David has joined Felicia Day as well as Walking Dead star Steven Yeun for an animated adaptation of the critically-acclaimed Image Comic, ‘Chew’. The part was originally going to be played by the late Robin Williams. David will be voicing the character, Mason Savoy, a mentor-turned-villain. For more information about ‘Chew’, visit Cinema Blend.
Marvel have announced that the TV series ‘AKA: Jessica Jones’ in which David plays Zebediah Killgrave/The Purple Man, has had a name change to ‘Jessica Jones’, which is much shorter and sweeter.
He was feared by monsters the universe over in Doctor Who. But for young fans of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, David Tennant may send them scurrying behind the sofa as he turns baddie for a change.
The actor has recorded an episode of the hit animation, playing an evil genie called Dread.
And judging by our exclusive picture (above) he seemed to enjoy the role.
Premiering on Tuesday July 14 on Disney Junior, the episode Dread the Evil Genie! will see the hero Jake and his mates help Pip the Pirate Genie from being captured by Dread, a wrong ‘un who drains genies of all their magic power so that he can boost his own.
The actor joins a star-studded line-up of voice cameos set to feature across Disney Junior programming in the coming months.
Jake and the Never Land Pirates will also showcase the voice talents of actor Malcolm McDowell who will voice Lord Fathom in a special 44-minute episode called Jake and the Never Land Pirates: The Great Never Sea Conquest.
Nestor Carbonell (Lost), Brett Dalton (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Chloe Bennet (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will lend their talents to fearless birds Eagle-Eye, Talon and Swifty in the same episode.
Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) and John Ross Bowie (The Big Bang Theory) will reprise their roles as mermaid Oona and seahorse Sven in another Disney favourite, Sofia the First.
Sofia The First will also see Isla Fisher (The Great Gatsby) and Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings) feature as mischievous sprites Button and Bengee.
Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Dread the Evil Genie! premieres on Tuesday July 14 at 6.15pm on Disney Junior
I have added Blu Ray screen caps from the TV drama United (2011), which also starred Jack O’Connell (Bobby Charlton) and Sam Clafin (Duncan Edwards) as the Busby Babes that were involved in the Munich air crash. Manchester United lost many of their players in that crash. David played Jimmy Murphy the coach and the person who got Manchester United playing again. For more information on Jimmy Murphy go here.
I have made two new wallpapers of David for the site at the resolution of 1020 x 960. Take a look at the wallpapers section here.
FORMER Doctor Who star David Tennant is to play the controversial Scottish psychiatrist R.D. Laing in a new film.
The actor has signed up to play the Glasgow-born psychotherapist who became a counter-cultural guru in the 1960s after championing the use of LSD.
The film, called Metanoia, will chart the story of Laing and his unique psychiatric community at Kingsley Hall, East London, during the 1960s and will also star Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss.
Laing was born, raised and trained in Glasgow, attending Glasgow University and working at hospitals in the city before moving in the 1950s to London.
There he became a maverick figure who challenged many of the conventions of psychotherapy, most notably the use of drugs.
Actor Sir Sean Connery is reputed to have taken LSD with Laing and later warned friends off the drug after experiencing a ‘bad trip’.
The film is to be written and directed by Robert Mullan, who is also the author of three books about Laing.
Broadchurch star Tennant, 44, from Paisley, Renfrewshire, said: “I have long been fascinated by the life and work of RD Laing.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and discover this important man and I am honoured and thrilled to be involved in telling this story.
“Robert Mullan’s passion for the subject is inspiring and the presence of the brilliant Elisabeth Moss makes this something I cannot wait to start work on.”
Shooting for the film will take place early next year at studios in Cologne and on location in London.
I have screen capped the 2005 Quatermass Experiment TV drama and there is a total of 288 screen caps to view.
